This week's challenge selection is the other side by Kathy. Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.
I thought I'd explore what it looks like on the other side of the camera. So, I set one up for a macro, then I set another one up on a tripod, manually focused on the face of the lens and triggered it with a wireless remote.
I also showed what it looks like from behind the simple hide I constructed for birding. It's a cheap remnant of black cloth, duct taped to the back door, with an asterisk cut to poke the lens hood through. This way, if I sit patiently, I can catch birds coming to the feeder at the edge of my deck.
If that lens looks odd, it's because I reversed it, showing the other side. A reversed lens is a hack to get closer for macro photography.
